Philips Comments on Medicare Hospital Outpatient Payment Proposal for 2014

September 12, 2013

 

Philips Healthcare has submitted its comments on proposed policy and rate changes for Medicare’s Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System for 2014. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid services will issue a final rule in November that will go into effect on January 1, 2014.

 

Philips focused its comments in two major areas:

 

  • The proposed calculation and use of proposed cost centers for MRI and CT reimbursement rates
  • New policies that would “package” additional items and services into the outpatient payment categories they support and eliminate separate payment for many procedures
